What tyres suit the Type R. Spirited dry performance

I used Nankang ns2r soft compound on my previous cars but diff setup rear drive, mid engine.

On my old EP3 had proxes T1R, they were good but looking for a more capable tyre.

Michelin pilot sport 4 get good reviews?
What are people using on here ?

Goodyear F1 AS3 at the moment.
Grip like a good 'un and have lasted 18k miles so far with about 4mm left all round after one f to r swap.
Will be going for the AS5 next time round as my driving doesn't warrant the extra cost of the PS4.

Yes but do well in the wet & cold if you drive to the conditions.
Only get snow & ice where I live every 3 years or so, so can't say how they perform in a proper winter environment.

Im on the same Goodyears as Wilmo, same sort of mileage, very good wear, good wet weather performance. Reviews saying ASY 5's a better tyre, Goodyear Supersport series getting good reviews now too.

Quite like the Michelin primacy 4, more of a comfort orientated tyre but still have a decent amount of grip!

That's a steal tbh.
Please give your feedback on them. What you running right now?

Thanks for the replies so far guys .

I'm after a sports focused tyre not to bothered about comfort or wear at this time.

Some tyres may seem overkill for the civic but I'm used sticky rubber on my previous cars

at the moment I have goodyear asy 3 on rear which havnt been on that long and are on 2 spare wheels I picked up cheap
on the front im running Pirelli cinturato which I don't rate at all slightest bit of damp and they spin out of junctions even with the low power of the 1.6 diesel

I got a set of Continental Extremecontact Sports from 4wheelonline. Dry traction is amazing with strong braking and cornering response. They are good in the rain also.

Got Goodyear F1 assymetric 5's on mine, very good in the wet and dry, fairly quiet and do last well (main reason for fitting them)
I liked the Uniroyal Rainsport 3's very grippy, very comfy but very soft (only got about 6000 miles on the front.

I got Nitto tires from 4WheelOnline for my 2006 Honda Civic, and it is running perfectly. I am also planning to get Mud grapplers for my Honda Ridgeline because 4WheelOnline is offering it at an excellent price.
